Magic Hour is a technique that appears in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. It allows the user to generate giant pillars of light that damage the opponent.


In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Magic Hour is Dual-wielding Roxas's Limit Break. It consists of him jumping a few feet off the ground, then summoning the pillars of light to rain down randomly around him. The Final Limit increases the size, speed, and strength of the pillars, and also shields Roxas in a cloak of light. During both phases, Roxas can stall the attack with B, forcing him to drop down, allowing him to move elsewhere and resume the attack with A.

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Magic Hour is an Ultimate attack command exclusive to Aqua that takes up two slots in the Command Deck, has a maximum level of 5, has a normal reload time of 25 seconds, and refills the Command Gauge by 10%. It also has a Command Shop value of 2500. Magic Hour causes the user to teleport to the air above an enemy, and dive down to generate a single pillar of light. The player is required to press Triangle when signaled to continue generating the pillars.
